D-Day update on our National Monuments – Thurs 8/24

Greetings Public Lands Activists:
 We are starting to get  more details as we talk with the Secretary of the Interior’s office regarding the national monuments Interior Secretary Zinke has recommended be reduced in size to the President today.
As we knew all along the main targets of the national monument review ordered by the President was Bears Ears National Monument and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument both in Utah. And that was proven true today. When the President acts those two NM’s will shrink dramatically.
 But there is more, many national monument protection rules and regulations will be changed or done away with altogether. Many NM’s will see what the Secretary calls “more appropriate multiple uses”.
The 2018 federal budget will also be used to impact many national monuments and other national public lands in a negative way.
It appears that the Administration will dribble out over a period of time exactly what other NM’s will have boundaries reduced, this hoping to avoid massive public outcry (we will make sure that no matter when, there WILL BE massive public outcry).

Tools of Resistance – Making Calls FASTER!

The battle is getting hotter and we need people to make more calls because they WORK!

You should be able to make 5-8 calls in 10 minutes.

“Hah!” I hear you say…”You’re smoking something. Not possible.”

No, Really! Here’s how!

Step 1 – Eliminate Dialing!

You could die of dialing, dialing, dialing. So take a little time to get your communication weapon ready for battle!

Playing chicken with our health…

This horrendous game continues with a mystery bill. But we can still win this! 

Whatever Mitch McConnell comes up with to get 50 votes will be a nightmare for any state. However, by using budget reconciliation, legislation has to comply with the Byrd Rule, as judged by the Senate Parliamentarian. Democrats must call out any provision (and there are at least seven of them) that don’t comply.

How do we win? We bury them ALL in calls. 

If they are Democrats, they need your support AND big call tallies to show their GOP colleagues. 

If they are Republicans, tell them to start collecting packing boxes. If you have friends or family with GOP senators, have them join you in this battle.

Script for Dem Senators: I calling to ask Senator [___] to continue to fight the TrumpCare bill with “point of order” objections to anything that breaks the Byrd rules, and to offer as many amendments as possible to delay final voting.

Script for Republican Senators: I calling to ask Senator [___] to vote against whichever version of TrumpCare bill is on the table today. These proposals will destroy the lives of thousands of people from our state and we will all remember your actions next time voting comes around.

Senator Feinstein: DC (202) 224-3841, LA (310) 914-7300, SF (415) 393-0707, SD (619) 231-9712, Fresno (559) 485-7430

Senator Harris: DC (202) 224-3553, LA (213) 894-5000, SAC (916) 448-2787, Fresno (559) 497-5109, SF (415) 355-9041, SD (619) 239-3884

Call them again. And again.

Script: I’m calling to tell Senator [____] to vote “NO” on S1460, the massive energy bill being rushed through the Senate. It’s opposed by conservation, water, farming, and even industry groups because it will only increase our country’s dependence on fossil fuels and further endanger the environment.

Senator Feinstein: DC (202) 224-3841, LA (310) 914-7300, SF (415) 393-0707, SD (619) 231-9712, Fresno (559) 485-7430
